Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

February.26.2009

3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3 tablespoons lime juice

Directions:
1. In a small bowl, mix together salt, black pepper, cayenne, paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, and parsley. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of chicken breasts.

2. Heat butter and olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until golden brown, about 6 minutes on each side. Sprinkle w/ 2 tsp garlic powder and lime juice. Cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently to coat evenly w/ sauce.

I cook brown long grain rice then when the chicken is done cooking I take it out of the pan and put the rice in & stir it around to soak up the rest of the spices and sauce.
